Easy and Adorable Sun Hat Craft

One thing I remember from going to the beach or park as a kid was that my Latino parents were always hiding from the sun.  As a kid I didn’t care, and sure enough within 20 minutes I looked like a red frijol but the grown ups did, so they hid. Mi mami was notorious for forgetting her sun hat so we would always find her holding a piece of newspaper over her head to keep her creamy, milky skinRead More ...

How I Tackle My Biggest Parenting Stress

Being a mom to one girl might seem from the outside to be “easier” when it comes to dealing with the messes and stresses of parenting. There’ s only one mouth to feed, one body to clean and clothe, one bilingual mind to nurture.

Recalls Plus App

We all want the best for our niños. We are careful about the food that they eat, the toys they play with, and of course strollers and car seats that we buy for them. When we hear that there has been a recall on a certain product that resembles one our kids have, we run to check if it’s the same as ours. It’s hard to keep track of our kids products and monitor their safety. Recalls Plus allows usRead More ...
